Construction of a Sainik School in Sangolli, Belagavi named after freedom fighter Sangolli Rayanna will be completed this year. Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai said on Monday.
Speaking to the mediapersons, after garlanding the saint-poet Kanakadasa’s statue near the Legislators’ Home in Bengaluru, he said, “We have spent Rs. 180 crore for this. We will spend another Rs. 50 crore to finish it. This will assist youngsters in leading a disciplined life.”
The school is being developed on a 70-acre plot at Sangolli in Bailahonga taluk.
CM Bommai said he had written to Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, requesting that the school handed over to his Ministry once the construction is finished.
He further stated that Rayanna belonged to the same ideology samadhi is as Kanakadasa. “Rayanna’s also being developed by our government, and a museum devoted to him is coming up,” he added.
